Owls Linked With Johnson

Wednesday are one of a number of clubs to have been linked with a move for pacey Bradford winger Jermaine Johnson this week.

Owls boss Brian Laws attended the Intersonic Stadium at the weekend to see Johnson play in the Bantam's 2-0 defeat to Yeovil Town - and could make a move for the hitman before the close of the January transfer window.

And Bradford have already rejected a 250,000 approach from Championship leaders Derby County - but Bantams boss Colin Todd admits he could lose the former Oldham man should the right offer come in.

He told the Telegraph and Argus: 'As manager, I am governed by the chairman but if I have to lose players then it becomes very, very difficult.

'I don't know what's going to happen but there were people there watching JJ. There has been a lot of interest in him and I'm sure there will be in Omar Daley.

'I keep bringing these players in but who is going to get the benefit? It's something I just have to accept and still try to get the best out of the players.'

And the Owls will have the majority of the 2.5m picked up from the sale of defender Madjid Bougherra this week to spend on new players - but Laws is still unsure whether to use it now or wait until the summer.

Player with lots of pace and I bet Bradford would let him go pretty cheaply so worth a gamble.
